Local men's soccer side hosts Gorge FC this Sunday at Vanier

n front of a supportive crowd at Vanier, the Comox Valley United men’s soccer team won their second of six games in the Pearkes Challenge Cup playoffs with a 6-0 romp over Juan de Fuca of Victoria.

United is in Div. 3B of the Vancouver Island Soccer League while Juan de Fuca is in Div. 4C. Possession was established early at Sunday’s match as Comox Valley made some great runs and passes down the field.

Within five minutes, United’s Jerrit Dickinson potted the first and second goals. Comox Valley put it away with a fantastic tic-tac-toe play from Cam McIntosh to Dickinson to a streaking Riley Murray who hammered a one-timer in the back of the net. Dickinson got his hat trick, Murray added another and McIntosh netted number six. Dickinson, now a threat at the centre forward position, has made coach Carey Cordecedo think about his lineup for this weekend. “Like a great coach once said, I may have to flip a coin,” says Cordecedo.

Goalkeeper Tyler Salmond was not tested much as the solid Comox Valley defence let nothing through.

The team moves on to take on Gorge FC of Victoria at 2:15 p.m. at Vanier this Sunday, Feb. 17 for their third round match up. United (10-1-3) is third in Div. 3B while Gorge (4-11-1) is eighth.
